Information Collection Requirement

    Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback 
on Agency Service Delivery.
    Type of Request: Extension.
    OMB Control Number: 1652-0058.
    Form(s): NA.
    Affected Public: Individuals, Households, Businesses, 
Organizations, and State, Local or Tribal Governments.
    Abstract: The information collection activity provides a means to 
gather qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, 
timely manner, in accordance with the Administration's commitment to 
improving service delivery.
    From TSA's perspective, qualitative feedback from customers and 
stakeholders is information that provides useful insights on their 
perceptions, experiences, opinions, and expectations regarding TSA 
products or services, provides TSA with an early warning of issues with 
service, and focuses attention on areas where changes regarding 
communication, training, or operations might improve delivery of 
products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, 
collaborative, and actionable communications between TSA and its 
customers and stakeholders. They will also allow feedback to contribute 
directly to the improvement of program management. The solicitation of 
feedback will target areas such as: Timeliness, appropriateness, 
accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and 
resolution of issues with service delivery. Responses will be assessed 
to plan and inform efforts to improve or maintain the quality of 
service offered by TSA. If this information is not collected, vital 
feedback from customers and stakeholders on TSA's services will be 
unavailable.
    As a general matter, information collections will not result in any 
new system of records containing privacy information and will not ask 
questions of a sensitive nature. Information gathered is intended to be 
used only internally for general service improvement and program 
management purposes and is not intended for release outside of TSA (if 
released, TSA must indicate the qualitative nature of the information). 
Feedback collected under this generic clearance provides useful 
qualitative information, but it does not yield data that can be 
generalized to the overall population. Qualitative information is not 
designed or expected to yield statistically reliable or actionable 
results; it will not be used for quantitative information collections. 
Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, 
there may be future information collection submissions for other 
generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results.
    Below we provide the Transportation Security Administration's 
projected average estimates for the next three years:
    Number of Respondents: 7,094,500.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 3,547,250 hours 
annually.
